But this book is women's fiction at heart, it is about Mallory's struggles as a single parent while Bell is away chasing the next steep mountain, about her relationship with Bell, and the nagging question of how much that relationship has cost her and how much it is worth. This is certainly more central to the book than the idea that Bell is a skier.
So when asked about covers for the re-release, I thought it would be good to emphasize those themes, particularly that one of motherhood. This new design is quite different from the old, but I think it says something vital about the story. I like it a lot. I hope you will, too.
